Adapt Courseware Releases Introduction to Sociology for Colleges and Universities Nationwide
Date:5/22/2013

Rochester, NY (PRWEB) May 22, 2013

College and university students around the country can now have access to Adapt Courseware’s new Introduction to Sociology offering, which presents curriculum in an adaptive framework that responds based on each student’s behavior, knowledge, and aptitude. Adapt Courseware, the provider of comprehensive adaptive online curriculum resources that individualize each student’s learning experience, is continuing to develop introductory level general education offerings, enabling institutions to create efficiencies and scale large course sections, while at the same time measurably improve student learning outcomes, satisfaction, course completion, and retention.

The company’s adaptive learning technologies, combined with sophisticated multimedia instructional techniques and motivational support strategies, continue to produce impressive results at numerous colleges and universities. Study findings have consistently demonstrated higher student performance, success, and re-enrollment.

“Too many colleges and universities are struggling with capacity limitations and success rates for general education courses. Students are either being turned away from overenrolled or closed sections, or simply not completing their courses,” said Dr. John Boersma, CEO of Adapt Courseware and a former university faculty member. “By embracing scalable, evidenced-based learning strategies, such as our approach to adaptive learning, institutions can overcome a wide assortment of accessibility barriers in required core courses, while driving better results.”

“Based on feedback from faculty and administrators, we have designed a comprehensive curriculum roadmap, including Introduction to Sociology and Introduction to Psychology, which represent offerings with the greatest opportunities to effectively and efficiently serve more students, as well as make a positive impact on student achievement,” continued Dr. Boersma.

Adapt Courseware places the student at the center of the learning experience, creating personalized learning paths to subject mastery. Its Introduction to Sociology offering allows students to engage with content through multimedia interactives, succinct and understandable text, and dynamic videos, depending on their preferences and individualized learning styles. Concepts and activities adapt based on students’ needs, allowing them to more actively explore both traditional and modern sociology topics as they relate to socialization, gender, globalization, and social movements.

“As we continue to focus our development efforts on high-enrollment general education, remedial education, and business administration curriculum resources, more students will have the opportunity to excel,” said Steve Wehner, who serves as Vice President of Curriculum Development at Adapt Courseware and teaches at the college level. “Our team and our customers are really excited about our growing portfolio of innovative new offerings that will be announced over the next few months.”
